Is HERE!

I am pretty excited to be playing in this campaign, particularly as I am pretty much always the GM for my gaming groups. So, given the rare opportunity to actually be a player, I am going all in. As such, I've started a campaign journal for my character, Kaiden Varn.

Apologies that some of the entries, including this first one, might run a bit long. The truth is, this journal is serving 2 masters:

1. I'm just finding it really fun to get into this character's head and writing from his perspective. Hopefully that comes across.

2. I love to write, but sadly, have done very little of it in the years since I graduated from college with my English degree. I'm hoping that these journals get those juices flowing again, and get me back into practice.

I'll update this thread when I add an entry for those who are interested but don't regularly check the campaign journals forum.

HUZZAH!!!

This catches me up on our group's progress. Our next session is tomorrow night! Unfortunately, the player who is Melia will not be able to make it. Hopefully our group makes it through down a crew member!

Oh, and for those who are interested, our party is thus:

Kaiden Varn: Male Human Bard (Besmara's Hand*/Seasinger)
Indranna: Female Daemon-spawn Tiefling Alchemist (Chirurgeon/Vivisectionist)
Braahm: Male Half-elf Ranger (Trophy Hunter)
Melia: Male Elf Diviner (Planning to multiclass as Musketeer Gunslinger)

*Dawnflower Dervish reflavored to fit Besmara. See Kaiden's profile for more details.

One more and I'll be caught up with our current progress. Hope to have that up tomorrow night.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

And we're caught up!

Next session is this Friday, and Melia will be back. Huzzah!

Osirion

Our first journals are going up now as well.

Look for the links under each PC listing, they will be added as I receive submissions from my players.

Here is our group's journal started. Plenty of humor and fun so far.

Our journal continues with some in character input as well: Skull & Sharkles.

The first section of The Wormwood Mutiny draws to a close with tensions on the ship running high.

Our heroes undertake the dangers of Riptide Cove.

Oh wow, I'm so glad I adopted Vigor and Wounds after reading your recommendation of those rules Sabedoriaclark.

Day 3: Fish in the Nets, Rats in the Bilges and Silver in the Pocket

Wherein a New Character gets introduced (complete with funky Trait) and friends and enemies are made and things are bought and sold.

Escapes do not get much narrower than this.

Silver Crusade

Awesome.

Some leisure and some dreams at Rickety Squibs.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

I had to go a week without running a game. Seeing a familiar dream pop up in your story does my heart a world of good.

Yeah, we are gonna miss two weeks while I'm visiting family in California so I feel your pain.

I'm definitely using the dreams and the clock as you've imagined them. They may confront Harrigan in the fort in part 5 but he will escape to the wormwood, desperate. I envision a final chase through a stormy straight and a battle in a massive whirlpool where they figure out how to destroy the clock and send Harrigan and the Wormwood to Davy Jones' Locker.

Five days at Rickety's in two parts.

I changed Lyle Godwin's pet Rotgut to a Gibbon since there's already a foul-mouthed parrot in the game. I also had Lyle killed by an imp sent to spy on the party to add some intrigue to the time at Rickety's. More hints at Chelish involvement. Was it Harrigan? Or did it come off that Chelish Galleon Peggsworthy was sailing?

Dreams explained and the Sweet Trade begun in earnest. Our heroes adventures continue.

A pirate battle worthy of any film between our heroes a goblin Drekar and a Pathfinder vessel, unfolded on the seas last night.

A bit of light comedy and a failed Sahuagin ambush fill the time while our heroes head toward Tidewater Rock.

Some in-character posts from the characters should be joining the thread as well.

Flattering. We're just having fun playing - and I'm borrowing your ideas too. :D

I'm greatly enjoying reading the ideas you two (and others) have suggested for inclusion in this AP. What with one thing and another it will be some time before the group I'm GM-ing gets as far into the story as you have, but I fully intend to incorporate most of your excellent modifications as our adventure progesses.

Although I've been playing and running RPGs for a long while this is the first time I have relied so much on pre-printed materials, and your suggestions as to how things can be tweaked or modified are most helpful.

Keep up the good work! ;D

Our heroes find someone to replace Varanus and become entangled with a Ratfolk plague-ship called the Cesspool.

The Sea Drake appears to have been part of an ambush which takes the life of one of our heroes.

Saberdoriaclark if this isn't the most entertaining pirate romp I've ever read I'll eat my hat.


Keelhauling is too good for that Sorcerer. Peel her and make a wall hanging out of her skin.

Thanks for the encouragement. I agree: Inkskin has to die. In good time.

Edge of my seat as always! My game got cancelled this month due to a medical emergency, so I live vicariously through you.

Our heroes have vengeance on their minds as they confront Inkskin and a horde of Sahuagin.

Silver Crusade

Hahahaa. You do very well at keeping your players on the back foot.

Into the caves below the Isle of the Blue ring our heroes pursue Cyrus Wolfe's Booty.


Que Sera Sera. If Inkskin wasn't such a mad-dog, she might of gotten what she wanted, instead of what she deserved.
